Welcome to our new Thursday City Walk program. Meet at about 10:00 AM outside (or inside) the Tim Hortons at 4986 Yonge, just south of North York Centre Station. We will begin the walk at 10:10 sharp.
We will walk approximately 8 Km in two loops, ending near North York Centre Station. We will visit the location of a 1963 murder, walk over some lost rivers (or streams), walk through part of Koreatown North, pass Cummer Burying Grounds, and see a few other points of interest along the way. The route will be on city streets and paved or gravel pathways, so be sure to wear footwear appropriate for the weather conditions.
There may be parking lots close to the start of the walk, or there may be street parking available on nearby side streets, but the best choice may be to use the subway.
No scheduled subway outages have been posted yet, but please check Subway service (ttc.ca) in case there are any changes.
